“Do you think Trayvon Martin got justice?” State of the Union host Candy Crowley asked Arizona Senator John McCain on Sunday morning, in a conversation that eventually led to McCain recommending that the much-criticized Stand Your Ground laws be reviewed in the many states that have them on the books.

McCain first affirmed the validity of the jury’s verdict. “I trust the judgment of a jury of his peers,” McCain said. “No one that I know of have said that this case was flawed, that it was corrupt, that there was anything wrong with the system of justice.”

“But you understand how it could be seen, as the President talked about, through a prism of the history of injustice?” Crowley pressed.
